Episode #240 of "Media Edge" (December 12-14):
"Peak Moment" (28 minutes)
Jenny Pell’s infectious enthusiasm will sweep you up into creating a future that’s beyond sustainable — to one that’s "additive." This lively permaculturist suggests that you belong where you live and get (re)connected to your "chain of inputs and outputs". She invites us to regain skills, especially in food production, and to participate in creating abundance, which is "the only way forward, the only way for the human family to survive."
"On the Way to Copenhagen" (88 minutes)
Mark Hertsgaard was the keynote speaker at the 6th Annual Dinner of the Sacramento Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility on October 18, 2009. An independent journalist, Mr. Hertsgaard is the author of five books and covers climate change for The Nation, Vanity Fair, Time and Die Zeit and has written for many of the world's leading newspapers and magazines. His forthcoming book is Living Through the Storm: Our Future Under Global Warming. "On the way to Copenhagen" was the title of his talk in which he discussed the December 2009 UN Climate Change Conference as, perhaps, the last, best chance to reverse the effects of global warming.
